"To encourage a reaching out in total service to the community and the development of resources on the part of all clubs in Ohio Rotary District 6630, the A. Z. Baker Service Awards were established in 1978, to honor our own "Mr. Rotary," A.Z. Baker, from the Rotary Club of Cleveland who served as Rotary International President in 1955-1956," stated Rotary Assistant Governor Kevin Wermer.

A.Z. Baker's dedication and commitment to Rotary truly exemplified SERVICE ABOVE SELF and this award was designed to honor his memory by encouraging all clubs in the district to participate in each of the Five Avenues of Service: Community, Vocational, Club, International and Youth.

Congratulations to 2017-18 President Roger Hassler and the Medina Sunrise Rotary Club for being the recipient of the A.Z. Baker SERVICE ABOVE SELF Award and for "Making a Difference" in the lives of children in our community and beyond through their time, talents and treasures!
